  1. Name color favorites/swatches

    I'd like the ability to assign names to saved colors in my document's color palette library (the color picker "favorites" list).

    This makes it easier to identify the correct color to use when my palette contains multiple similar colors.

    This may also be useful for future features like making document-wide color changes (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/12869085-global-style-color-edits).

  2. Export Assets as PDF

    Add PDF to list of export options for Vector assets in addition to just SVG.

    PDF contain embedded sizing information (in points), allowing assets to be used directly in iOS with no manual rasterization necessary.

    This would allow an iOS/OSX developer to export vector assets just once, and import directly into XCAssets library immediately with no intermediate steps.

    Here's how this is accomplished with Illustrator today: http://martiancraft.com/blog/2014/09/vector-images-xcode6/

    Our July release will have options to export selected artboards or assets to a single PDF or multiple PDF files.

  3. Full screen shared prototypes on desktop (fill entire browser tab/page)

    Ability to view full screen (within your browser) desktop sized prototypes.

    Gives you the ability to experience the prototype as if it were a live website.

    This feature is now available for shared prototypes. On the web, click the full screen icon at the top right of the page to see your shared prototype in a full screen mode.

  4. Return the Fill eyedropper to its previous location and add a keyboard shortcut

    I rely heavily on the color picker, and it is now two clicks away instead of one. Furthermore, there's no keyboard shortcut for it. Returning the color picker to its previous collection and/or adding a keyboard shortcut will save me a lot of time in the long run.

    This is a crosspost of "Color picker now 2 clicks away" under the Bugs section: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353010-adobe-xd-bugs/suggestions/32248015-color-picker-now-2-clicks-away

  5. Able to comment on a specific part of the prototype

    As you share your prototype it would be great if I could leave a comment anywhere in the prototype, say on a specific button or image, etc.

    With today’s update of XD, you can now pin comments to an artboard. From a shared prototype:

    1) Click on the comment icon (top right) to open the comments pane.
    2) Sign in with and Adobe ID, or as a guest.
    3) Type in your comment.
    4) Click on the “Pin to Artboard” link.
    5) Move your pin to the correct location on the artboard.
    6) Drop the pin.

  6. Padding and Margin limiters

    Each container should have a padding and margin delimiter and whenever you are dragging an element into a contanier, the container should limit the new child element so that you don't excede the padding limits, because in HTML it won't

    Additionally, it would be also good to have a margin delimiter between elements:

    if you drag one box with a padding of 10 px, then those 10 px should always be the delimiter for the next box in either direction.

  7. Switch between grid and flow view for Share for Development

    There has been a recent change to the share for Dev view. We relied on that view to express flows. Now it is in a grid similar to Zeplin. I get the change, but not the removal. It would be great to be able to switch between the two. This way individual assets are still quickly accessed and the flow can also be expressed. Our devs were looking at the linking and able to view the overall flow. This was determined to be extremely helpful.

  8. Jira

    Competitive products like Invision App, and tools for product teams such as Wizeline have recently released this integration. Being able to develop UX and associate it with a software development task is huge.

  10. Find Artboard, Layer, or Text

    I just noticed that sometimes its hard to find artboards, text, layers if you have a large prototype pages in your project. I think it would be nice to have a search function like the photoshop layers that has the ability to search through layers,styles,text,layer names and more. Maybe some "solo"(after effects feature) feature as well to show only the page that you are working on.

    Closing this one as we’ve delivered search and filtering options for layers panel a while ago.

    If you’re experiencing any issues with the current feature, please let us know in a comment or in a separate request.

  11. Zoom in interactive prototype shared link (Share for Review mode)

    PLEASE add a Zoom capability for "Share for Review" public links. Unbelievable that when sharing a URL with a client of a website that is 1920x5950 that there is no way to zoom the image to fill the full width of the screen so they can actually read the text and see what their web page will look like. Why does the public link only allow the full height of the artboard to be displayed and not allow a zoom-and-scroll functionality? We've had to resort to sharing designs in Dropbox and using that zoom and comment functionality because XD never…

  12. Publish Character Style Names in Design Specs

    When you are working with many different fonts it's handy to name them to keep check of what you are working with. However when uploading the design specs to hand over to the developer, it lists the font styles WITHOUT the custom names.

    Please can you upload the style names too?

  13. Snap text box edges to edge of text

    When using the Text Tool, it would be good if the edges of the automatically created text box snapped to the edges of the text. This would ensure distance between elements is calculated from the text itself, rather than the text box it sits within.

    Hi All -

    We’re excited to announce that with XD May release, you could create a single source of truth for all your colors, character styles, and components in an XD cloud document and reuse all your assets in your XD documents.

    With the linked assets feature, you can easily share and consume not only components — or what was formerly known as symbols — but colors and character styles as well. This is incredibly handy if you are sharing sticker sheet with your team or reuse design elements across projects.

    Linked Assets complement the workflow of linked components. When you modify a linked asset in the source document, all the consuming documents with those linked assets receive update notifications. From there, you can choose preview and accept the updates.

    To learn more about this feature check out:
    letsxd.com/whats-new
    helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/linked-assets.html

    Please give it a try and let us know what…

  15. slack integration

    For my team, this would be much better than just a dedicated in-tool comment system for getting feedback as this would make my prototypes more accessible to the whole team and company without the need for me to specifically send the link to select individuals.

  16. Add discussion feature to Design Spec

    Developers and designers where I work would love to get a place on the new Design Specs feature where they would add comments against artboards or even an element on a page.

    Maybe even code snippets and links to external systems to look at feedback from a client or user group.

    With XD’s most recent update, Design Specs now has the same great commenting feature as prototypes. Developers can comment on specs and you’ll be notified. Any updates, changes, or replies you make will automatically show up when they refresh their browsers.

    Thank you for upvoting feature here in Uservoice. Request you to please play around with this feature and as always keep the feedback coming.

  18. Comment inbox in web prototype

    I would like to have an inbox with all the new comments listed and each one linking to the appropriate page/screen.

    Right now you have to go through each page to see if there is a comment or not. This is tedious if you're using XD as a client review tool.

    Linear gradients are in! Download the June release of XD today to create and edit your linear gradients for object fills. To access this feature, select the fill color picker pop-up and select “Gradient” from the drop-down at the top of the dialog.

    If you don’t see the update in the Creative Cloud desktop application, click on the gear icon and select “Check for App Updates.”

  20. Copy vector art from Illustrator

    I can't find this exact feature request so I thought I would request it here. Is it possible to build XD so that any Adobe Illustrator artwork can be pasted into it?

    Photoshop has this ability so I'm continuing to use Photoshop for app design, however, Sketch has some nice features over Photoshop but it's inability to accept even the most simple compound shapes from Illustrator make it virtually unusable for serious design. If preventing users from switching permanently to Sketch is on Adobe's radar, I think y'all should get Illustrator objects compatibility going. It'll be the clincher to ensure…

    Closing this one, as we have improved in December and with the latest release the copy and paste workflow between XD and Illustrator.

    If there are specific things missing, let us know in comments or in a separate request.

    Best,
    Dan
